When looking for a swim spa or pool cover, you must properly check the materials used and how it functions before availing one. Some covers cannot be sealed tightly making the water temperature cold or worse, evaporate. Unless your pool cover is just made of mesh or net, then do not expect for a total protection because it can only filter leaves and other objects that cannot pass through the tiny holes.
Covers are not only used when it is winter. Many countries follow the government rules of putting a pool cover when not in use. Especially for pool owners who have small children who cannot swim by themselves, having a pool or swim spa at home is a big responsibility.
We all know the terrible accidents and injuries that kids may experience when we have our own pools in our residences. Drowning is one of the most common accidents happening all over the world, and believe it or not, even the simplest pool covers can save your children’s lives. Besides fences or gate around the pool, putting a cover is a big help too, to catch falling persons on the water.
Aside from the accidents, putting on covers on pools or swim spas can maintain your water clean and fresh. Who wants to swim in a water with lots of chemicals on it? Of course, it could be harmful especially to kids but most pool owners prefer using chlorine to maintain the water clean and to avoid replacing it regularly. With the help of pool covers, dusts and other debris are now avoidable. The tarpaulin or PVC type covers are best to shield the water from small particles.
At first, you may not see how important pool covers are, but after experiencing a lot of maintenance including all the expenses, inconvenience and threat to health, then that is the time you will realize that all you need is a pool cover to keep your pool clean and safe.
